I work for the Feds... I hold an expired license as a clinician on the side in the civilian sector (but I hadn't practiced in almost two years). Life has been an interesting turn of events, I'll say that.

Presently pulling my hair out looking for employment. Previously worked maintenance for a state park, and before that (and at the outset of the COVID pandemic) worked in a warehouse (which ended up being less than helpful to my career overall). I got my CDL B over the summer and have been looking for work as a driver, mostly with HAZMAT/Environmental waste disposal, but have also looked for state Department of Transportation jobs; government hiring tends to move notoriously slow though.

Entertainment/animation. Waiting for the industry to move completely to the South (only a matter of time) so I can be closer to home. Not too fond of LA in the near decade I've lived here. Things are mostly wfh anyway

Clerk for a barrister. Finally getting towards the end of studies to make the leap as a solicitor myself.

Love what I do. I think there is little more rewarding than making sure working rights keep ticking over.

I work in IT. Have you tried turning it off and back on?

I currently work an HR position for a government agency. The place I work is really interesting and I kind of want to go back to school for my doctorate just so I can do another job where I work.

Unemployed as hell.... Its really weird because I've always had a job since I've been 16, then I got made redundant shortly before covid hit and I haven't been able to find anything regular since other than the occasional babysitting. I've never really felt this desperate to find a job and it's been pressing on me a lot, but then I think that I'm in my final year of my degree, so maybe it's for the best.

Sorry to hear it. Ironically, we're having a tough time finding employees. I'm not sure what your expertise are but my advice is contacting people. Job placement these days is 70% a result of who you know. Make good relations with EVERYONE. One of them might know someone who knows someone, and right now, the US has had more demand for workers now than the last 20 years.

Where you said 'made redundant', I'm guessing you're in Europe? I'm less sure about the state of things over there.

Still, Best of luck!

Thanks, and yeah I'm in the UK, but I'm still a student and painfully low on connections haha, but I'm certain Who you know not What you know applies here too. I think the retail sector in particular has lots of vacancies but I've been there and... Don't really want to go back

Sorry to hear. Job hunting often seems like a nightmare. The jobs you can easily get, tend to be the ones, where you are treated the worse.

It probably is best for you to focus on your final year and hopefully once you have your degree, it'll be easier to get someone even without the connections.

At one point I decided to tie my life to cards. I was always unsatisfied with the usual Google maps. They are boring and have a lot of inaccuracies. More than once the maps failed me. So I decided to become a map maker. It's a kind of programming, since all the work is to create and develop a useful map for society. The task is not easy, but now maps get an interesting look, and most importantly the absence of errors and inaccuracies

Adjunct professor here—working contract to contract, with a few small lecturing gigs always ongoing. I'd like to pursue a PhD at some point, but I'd rather it be in the U.K., at the university where I got my MA. And since international travel isn't exactly the safest option right now, it's on hold.

It's just as well, really. I still haven't completely shaken the grad school burnout. Soon I'll have something published, though, if all goes well!

My job is sitting here at the refugee camp, while being in an appeal limbo.
My hobby is computer programming, drawing, writing and sound design.
I'm also slowly learning Arabic, because everyone here knows Arabic, but nobody speaks Dutch:p
Dunno though if one can monetize Arabic knowledge.

in my mind
i'm been working at my local Wegmans for over a year now. i used to work on the chef case serving food. now i'm the guy that cleans the tables, restocks utensils, and makes the dining section look presentable...and not look like a tornado hit it.
